Self-produced AZ-based artist Gabe Kubanda has a knack for brief pop-flavored love songs that are well-suited to relationship scenes in a movie or TV series. On “Gonna Be Ok” we get his message ASAP with a solid chorus and a rich-sounding arrangement that includes a female feature and cool sonic effects. As for Kubanda’s own voice––its genuine, multi-scale qualities make it the ideal instrument for his music. Reverbed piano is a nice complement to the artist’s sincere, trusting tones on “Every Day Ay,” while the summery “Twin Flames” impresses us with it effortless falsetto. Going forward, we suggest Kubanda hook up with a deft lyricist who can craft words that match the music’s sophistication.
